Our team of the week is lined up in a 4-2-1-3 formation.
Dele Aiyenugba [Hapoel Iksal]
Made sure they won the points with several crucial and athletic saves. Integral.
Semi Ajayi [Rotherham United]
Had the Reading forwards under his thumb and even had time to threaten up front as well. He scored the equaliser. Powerful.
Chidozie Awaziem [Rizespor]
Tackles, clearances and interceptions, the defender showed his qualities dealing with the Yeni Malatyaspor attack. Dominated the centre of the defence, he held sway throughout the game. Commanding.
Ola Aina [Torino]
Aina’s knowledge saw him alert to any danger as he blocked out any sniff of attitude from the Atalanta forwards. Worked well with his midfield and left the visitors looking as agile as a 250kg man. Concrete.
Moses Simon [Levante]
The former KAA Gent star gave a good account of himself as a winger in Levante’s loss to Real Madrid as a wing-back. Stimulating.
Azubuike Okechukwu [Rizespor]
On his third appearance of the season he crystallised his best moments with a productive performance that saw him push forward at every opportunity. His assist was well crafted. Inspiring.
Obinna Nwobodo [Ujpest]
The former Nigeria youth international scored a sublime strike for Ujpest in the Hungarian NB.1. Magnificent.
Alex Iwobi [Arsenal]
Another scintillating performance from the young Nigerian ace, who showed all his tricks and more with some lovely footwork. Always ready to take responsibility, it is his increasing vision that has helped Arsenal zoom up the table. Brilliant.
Taiwo Awoniyi [Royal Excel Mouscron]
Was a handful for Lokeren’s defence with his alert and intelligent play as he broke the deadlock following a well-worked move that ended with his delightfully taken strike. Exquisite.
Anthony Nwaekeme [Trabzonspor]
Never stopped running and played a part in one of the goals going through defenders like a chain smoker goes through cigarettes. Terrific.
Ebere Onuachu [Midtjylland]
The 24-year-old ace displayed all the skills that make him a wanted man and was always looking to hurt AGF. His brace showed why he is highly rated at the Scandinavian region. Remarkable.
